Thousands of Czechs increasingly dependent on social networks

Thousands of Czechs are becoming increasingly dependent on social networks, the internet news site reports. Although the Prague clinic for addiction treatment has never actually treated anyone with this diagnosis, psychologists say they frequently encounter the problem in patients with other additions. Psychologists say that people who are at risk of developing a social network addiction usually devote more than 6 hours a day to this activity at the expense of other social contacts.
